New Delhi: Newly-weds Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma met Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday, after returning from their destination wedding and honeymoon. “Captain of the Indian cricket team @imVkohli and noted actor @AnushkaSharma met PM @narendramodi this evening. The Prime Minister congratulated them on their wedding,” tweeted the Prime Minister’s Office.
Pime Minister Narendra Modi received an invite to Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli’s wedding reception, as revealed on his official Twitter account. The newlyweds posed for a picture with PM Modi, who congratulated them on their wedding. It is unclear if PM Modi will actually attend. The reception is in Delhi, which is Virat’s hometown, on Thursday. It will be the first of two receptions the couple have planned. The second will take place in Mumbai on December 26.
Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli married in Italy last week, after having managed to (almost) keep the wedding secret for a year. Anushka and her family were photographed flying out of Mumbai days before the wedding. They were headed to Italy where a heritage resort in Tuscany had been booked for the nuptials. Pre-wedding ceremonies included a mehendi and haldi. No celebrities were invited.
The newlyweds made the wedding announcement on their Twitter accounts with an identical message: “Today we have promised each other to be bound in love forever. We are truly blessed to share the news with you. This beautiful day will be made more special with the love and support of our family of fans & well wishers. Thank you for being such an important part of our journey.” Anushka and Virat also posted a honeymoon picture from somewhere snowy in Europe last week.
